That there is NOT a parrot!

There are lots of reasons to start watching Netflix’s The Dragon Prince. The animated series is made by some of the folks behind Avatar: The Last Airbender. It’s a lovingly-crafted fantasy adventure with plenty of charisma and a willingness to put a fresh spin on the usual tropes of the genre.

The reason I keep watching it? A parrot.

Without giving away too much, there’s a major character who appears to die during the first season of The Dragon Prince.

However, I’ve watched enough TV to know not to count anyone out until you see the body. And when the would-be murderer is known for trapping the souls of other people in places they aren't meant to be, the fact that the only witness to the crime happens to be a parrot starts to look less like tragedy and more like the groundwork for a plot twist.

Am I reading too much into this? Maybe, but I’m not the only one. Enough people have glommed on to the fan theory that one of the head writers for The Dragon Prince has had to deny it publicly. Even that isn’t enough to deter me though.

The truth is out there and with at least two more seasons of The Dragon Prince in the works, I’m certain that I haven't seen the last of the parrot.

If you too would like to do your own research and become “Parrot-pilled”, you can stream all five seasons of The Dragon Prince on Netflix.

What to expect from The Watchlist

The growing number of streaming video-on-demand services has unlocked a world of entertainment for everyday Australians. But what should be a dream come true has slowly turned into a living nightmare; an avalanche of content delivered direct to your screen with nobody sorting the rare gems from the rivers of cinematic sludge.

It's like that scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where the Nazi opens the coveted ark. The thing we so desperately wanted in Australia, after decades of delayed movie and TV releases, has melted our face off and turned us into a puddle of quivering goop.

What The Watchlist offers is a return to simpler times. Like getting a recommendation from the cool Video Ezy clerk. We keep our recommendations simple and focused, typically in line with a common theme (actor, director, genre etc.,) or recent release. 

There are plenty of services and newsletters like The Watchlist around the world, but our recommendations are specific to an Australian audience. So if we recommend something, you can be sure we'll tell you where its streaming too.
